WAYLAND --
A new version of the Wayland protocols collection is now available.

Wayland-Protocols 1.14 was released today by Red Hat's Jonas Ã…dahl. There are just two updates in this release for XDG-Shell and XDG-Output. The unstable XDG-Output protocol for describing displays/output devices from a desktop system now has support for name and description events.

The XDG-Shell protocol that is suited towards desktop systems with specifying window behavior around dragging / resizing / stacking / moving / minimizing, also saw an update. With Wayland-Protocols 1.14 there is now support for letting clients know about windows tiled state.

The brief Wayland-Protocols 1.14 details can be found via this mailing list post.
